Finn and I have both had a touch of the sicklies in the last few days so we had a rather low-key weekend. Lots of cuddling and laying around was the theme. I'm grateful that the older kids were with their other parents so they will hopefully stay healthy.
On Saturday, before I started feeling under the weather, I started an autumn wreath project. Of course, I ran out of the kind of nuts I was using, and since nuts in their shells don't make an appearance until November (unlike the gaudy Halloween decorations that appear in stores around late July), it will be a few more weeks until it's complete.
Finn and I also took a brief trip to our favorite local used bookstore for some new reading material. We were thrilled with our finds. (Check out the review of Child of Faerie, Child of Earth by Salt and Chocolate. I've been hoping to stumble across this out-of-print book and felt so grateful that I did!)
Tales from the Brothers Grimm, with assorted artwork from the late 1800s/early 1900s, was an equally wonderful find. Such a beautiful edition!
